Key Findings

Take home 1

C5 deficient mice demonstrate decreased white matter ischemia in the corpus callosum

Take home 2

C5 complement protein may play a critical role in mediating white matter injury

Take home 3

C5 may mediate inflammation in the setting of chronic cerebral hypoperfusion.

Take home 4

Astrocyte and microglial activation within the corpus callosum suggests an inflammatory process
